Nacelle Report – January 24

Below is the report published in the January 2024 issue of Nacelle, which covered Branch activities in November 2023

So here it is, Merry Christmas, everybody’s having fun!!

We kicked off November with a ride to Triumph Oxford to look at the new Triumph 400s they had for the day.  We looked at them, sat on them and talked to their staff about them. The consensus view was they were good looking bikes that were comfortable to sit on and reasonably priced. The real test will be when someone gets to ride one. Afterwards, a few of us rode on to the Court Hill café near Wantage for refreshments.

The highlight of this month was our Thursday night annual quiz when teams competed to answer a tough set of questions set by our chairman Bob. We had an excellent turn-out and everyone enjoyed the evening. Congratulations to the winning team.

Despite a lot of wet weather, we managed to fit in some more rides. We had a mid-week ride to Thruxton. We also had a Sunday ride to Chopper’s Café, but arrived to find it closed. Undeterred we set of for a repeat ride to Thruxton and a late breakfast at the café there. Remember, we continue to have rides throughout the winter.

Thursday evenings continue to be well attended, although almost everyone is coming by car now the evenings are cold and often wet. We have got some interesting Thursday evening events lined up for the winter months including some visiting speakers and an autojumble. Keep your eye on the website for details.

Keep on rolling!
